Kent State Performing Arts Center Wedding Photos | Jake & Andreina at the KSU PAC

Published in Weddings
I already knew the Kent State University Performing Arts Center was modern, beautiful, and a great venue for a wedding. However, what I found out for Andreina and Jake's wedding was that the KSU PAC is also most likely the best venue for a rainy Ohio fall day in terms of quantity and quality of light! It was wonderful to use the modern, bright, and open spaces inside the PAC for natural light photographs throughout the first look and portraits!  White and silver finishes abound, with some rich wood and metal textures sprinkled throughout. This made for an incredible backdrop especially when the Read the full post

Published in Photography, Weddings
Northeast Ohio Wedding Photos at Breitenbach Tool Shed The weather in Ohio is interesting, especially considering weddings and any plans to photograph outside.

Audrey and Erica at Arie Events did a wonderful job bringing Jacob and Sara's story to life through every detail and coordinating and planning an incredibly gifted team of vendors.

Maternity + Couple Photos on Film in Northeast Ohio | Jani & Eric

Published in Family, Photography
I had the opportunity to photograph Jani and Eric for maternity/couples portraits and wanted to push myself to leave the digital cameras at home. I am so glad I stuck with all film! Jani is a portrait and wedding photographer herself, and she brought incredible style along with her beautiful maternal glow. Jani and Eric hadn't had photographs of themselves made since their wedding, so she was excited to celebrate her relationship with Eric as well as the expectation of their third child. Their style and connection fueled the entire session, and the light was magnificent for highlighting their beauty as a couple and a growing family. Film isn't necessarily what I get most excited about, but it completes my vision for the way I see and photograph the love and interaction of couples and families. For Read the full post

Jordan and Patrick are two of the most authentic and awesome people you would ever have the pleasure of knowing.

Sippo Lake Engagement | Hiking, Kayaking, Love

Published in Photography
This time around we had an absolutely gorgeous day walking on the trails and kayaking at Sippo Lake for Jordan and Patrick's engagement photography! Last time we made the most of some crummy weather and were able to make some great night time downtown Canton photographs, but this time around we had the sun shining and time to play out on the trails and the lake! Jordan and Pat spend plenty of free time hiking the trails, hanging out at the library, and kayaking at Sippo Lake, so I was thrilled to include this personal location for their engagement session. Pat forgot to use hairspray, but Jordan Read the full post

Downton Canton Engagement| Jordan & Patrick

Published in Photography
What do you do with two of the coolest people you would ever want to meet? Don't let rain stop you from the first round of their engagement session! It looked like we were going to get rained out, and Jordan and Pat made some phone calls to get us into an amazing art collective for some photographs. Jordan is a huge fan of the flower art and we wanted to feature the art and personality of such a great space alongside their own personalities. When it came time to move on, we took to the streets (literally, but safely) for some photographs featuring downtown Canton, OH. Read the full post

Carrollton + Wilkshire Banquet Center Summer Wedding

Published in Photography, Weddings
Of course you give every client your best, but I was a bit nervous when I learned that Steph was an artist and art teacher. Artist types tend to be incredibly kind, but we all know the conversations and thoughts that pop into our minds when viewing another person's work. We can't help but critique. Thankfully, Steph and Craig were both incredibly laid back, and are thrilled with their photographs! I was able to photograph a ceremony in Carrollton for the first time, and enjoy the incredible evening at the Wilkshire Banquet Center in Bolivar, OH. The wedding was beautiful, focused on family, Read the full post

High School Senior Portrait Photography – Jared

Published in High School Seniors, Photography
It's been a long time coming, but here are a some of my favorite photographs from Jared's session last fall. It seems like the girls get all the attention with high school senior photos, but I don't see any reason not to nail the shots with the boys either! I've known Jared for a while, and his dry, yet hilarious personality was out in full force during our shoot. You can tell he felt confident and he was awesome to work with throughout the time we spent together. This was actually my first ever senior photo session, and I had a blast. Jared's whole family was awesome through the day of the Read the full post
